Cashew Hummus – Vegan Food & Living
It’s no secret that us vegans love a little hummus! It’s tasty, easy to make, and can be used in a whole range of dishes.
Typically made with chickpeas, we replaced them with cashews to make vegan cashew hummus both energizing and rich in protein and iron.
Cashews are rich in essential minerals and vitamins, in particular, they are a good source of copper, magnesium and manganese, all of which are important nutrients for energy production, brain health, immunity and bone health.
This cashew hummus is easy to make and convenient to store in the fridge for a post-workout snack.

This cashew hummus recipe is so simple to make – the only time-consuming part is soaking your cashews.
Once they have soaked for at least two hours to ensure a smooth texture when blended, simply put the ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until the ingredients are combined.
We like to leave ours a little coarse to give it a more traditional hummus texture, but you can blend it until completely smooth if you prefer.
Once the cashew hummus is blended, transfer it to an airtight container and refrigerate.
Serve with warm pita bread or vegan crackers with a sprinkle of paprika and a drizzle of chili oil for an easy vegan snack.
This Cashew Hummus is a great energy booster, making it ideal for a healthy snack when you need a boost.
